Pieces of Eight Costumes
Hello, my name is Sue Perez and I have been creating costumes and other clothes my whole life. I was born and raised in Cornwall which is a beautiful peninsula at the southwestern most tip of England, full of history with ties to many Pirates and the legends of King Arthur.
My interest in sewing started very young when I would make dolls clothes from scraps of materials and progressed from there. I studied dressmaking at school and started making a lot of my own clothes as a teenager, then when I became heavily involved in dance I used those same sewing skills to make my own costumes for the stage.
I specialize in quality Pirate and Renaissance costumes and am always up for a challenge. My creations have won numerous costume contests and are always the talk of the party. I strive to obtain a good balance between historic accuracy and modern comfort and convenience and like to select items that are versatile and can be accessorized multiple ways to portray different charaters. Most of my items are machine or hand washable although some fabric choices will need dry cleaning.
I hope you have as much fun wearing these items as I do creating them.
